Have you ever been so blissed out that your greatest desire was to encompass the whole world with your expansive, open heart?
Have you ever been basking in that effervescent sea of eternal oneness, only to be swept away by the swift under toe into the abysmal depths of despair that scream out “the connection you just made no longer
exists ~ in fact, it never existed at all?”
I’ve been blessed to have had several such experiences. Just when I thought I had mastered the art of riding those waves, staying balanced on my freshly waxed board, alas, I was knocked on my butt with a mouthful of sand and salt, crying out…”where am I?!”
What, on earth, causes us to be tossed about in such a manner?
Why, in consciousness, would we choose to be tossed about, allowing ourselves to be ripped open, torn to shreds, and left for dead?
My answer is: FEAR
FEAR is such a trickster, sporting fashions such as the familiar horns and flames look, while also adapting to the trendier “silver-lined seed of doubt” line about who you are and why you are here. It seems that its bag of tricks is deep and
wide, and adaptable to whatever distractions you might become temporarily
FEAR is like the whip that lashes through to your core, knocking you off balance and daring you to assert yourself with all you think you know. In fact, FEAR LOVES all that
you think you know…it’s a delicacy. All
that you think you know always wants to come out to play, and FEAR is a
wonderful playmate, indeed. All that you
think you know needs to be defended, after all, and anything outside of your
true defense-less nature is up for grabs.
So why is it then, if the heart holds the key to all truth, to all that is…and we “KNOW” this…that we can be so easily knocked off balance in the face of FEAR in one of its latest renditions?
I believe it is because it serves to take us deeper and deeper into the well of love…yes…that blissed-out sea of eternal oneness. It seems to me that each and every time I, within mere inches of my earthly life, manage to escape the clutches of this
old friend, I emerge with an enhanced vitality for the love of
all-that-is. That, indeed, the ease with
which I am able to recognize and embrace FEAR within my open heart ~ stroking
it lovingly and acknowledging it for what it is…becomes amplified ten-fold.
The FEAR begins to take on new forms as it fights to survive…it pulls out all the punches.
Are you READY…REALLY READY…to pull it into your heart?
Holy Mary, Mother of Jesus….I didn’t think I was at that point yesterday…in fact, I thought it was all over…but that was yesterday.
Fortunately, today is a new day, and many Angels, both of earth and beyond, came to my aid…showing me the way…reminding me what is real.
LOVE IS REAL…
Anything that isn’t love, isn’t real
That doesn’t mean it has no power.
All that is not love can appear quite powerful indeed,
Until it meets love.
Then, it can no longer exist.
For Love and Not Love cannot occupy the same space.
So I say, why try to fight not-love with more not-love….
Let’s unify the whole landscape within ourselves.
It’s all you, after all !
Back in the Love Saddle,
